July 17 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXVI No. 8 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Faulty span delaying dredging LYNDHURST The dredging of the contaminated Lyndhurst mudflats on the banks of the Passaic River won t begin until the Bridge St. Bridge which links Newark and Harrison over the river can be fixed officials say. When the dredging begins workers will be loading the contaminated soil onto barges that will be transported along the river to the Clean Earth plant in South Kearny for preliminary treatment and then will be shipped to an out-ofstate landfill for disposal. In order to facilitate those transports several bridges that cross the Passaic must be opened to allow for the passage of the barges. However one of those spans the Bridge St. Bridge (accessed via Harrison Ave. in Harrison to enter Newark) a swing bridge has been essentially inoperable since Superstorm Sandy damaged its two 50 hp motors. The bridge built by the American Bridge Co. in 1913 and rehabilitated in 1981 is operated and supervised jointly by Hudson and Essex counties on rotating two-year cycles according to Hudson County spokesman Jim Kennelly. When Sandy hit it happened to come on our watch Kennelly said. At some point they have used trucks to pull the bridge s swing arms he noted. see BRIDGE page BOE faces suit from one of its own Photo by Ron Leir Kearny Board of Education members tussle over who should occupy the president s seat.

It s hoped that this facility will relieve the strain faced by area hospital emergency rooms as the first stop for primary care for the region s indigent patients. In the town s CDBG application Mayor Ray McDonough says that many of Harrison s elderly now must be transported to several neighboring areas as Harrison s health care providers cannot serve all of their diverse medical needs. Also Harrison has a significant population of adults and children who either have no or insufficient health insurance coverage. The proposed FQHC will be able to serve these needs with high quality health care. Newly hired NHCAC President CEO Joan Quigley former longtime Jersey City Assemblywoman and vice president at the former St. Mary s Hospital in Hoboken said that the Harrison facility will be the first of its kind in West Hudson.

The 1.5-acre park being developed on the site of the old Magullian Fuel Oil Co. opposite the Redemptoris Mater Seminary will be dedicated in the memory of the town s former Deputy Mayor Frank Cardoza. Beyond that however the Portuguese Cultural Association of Kearny is looking to raise money for a monument on the grounds to dignify the contributions made by the Portuguese American community according to First Ward Councilman Albino Cardoso a member of the association and A president of the Portuguese Holy Family Association. Cardoza a native of Massachusetts who died in January 2012 at the age of 93 was a World War II Navy veteran who had played professional soccer in Europe. In Kearny where he spent most of his life Cardoza was politically active in his adopted community and a co-founder of the Portuguese Cultural Association here. Given the Portuguese connection Cardoso said the association felt it would be appropriate to have an honorific structure of some kind at the park. Mayor Alberto Santos whose family s roots are in Portugal noted that other town parks along the banks of the Passaic River are dedicated to the accomplishments of various ethnic groups marked by monuments in those parks and the association has inquired about a monument Photo by Ron Leir Mayor Alberto Santos gestures to a section of the future Frank Cardoza Park and the Passaic River just beyond. honoring the contributions of Portuguese Americans and we suggested this [Cardoza Park] location.

As of now Cardoso said the association is reviewing a few ideas for a theme and design for the proposed monument but is still in the initial phases of the project including plans for fundraising. Our hope is to have it ready to unveil for the first Sunday of June 2014 to coincide with the celebration of Portugal Day Cardoso said. If that scenario holds the unveiling would come well after the planned dedication of the park which will probably happen sometime this September according to Santos. Meanwhile Santos said the town is awaiting the delivery and installation of four benches one or two light fixtures near the [Passaic Ave.] curb and additional landscaping. And the mayor added There is still some work not included in the bid specifications to be done. Some overgrowth including weeds brush and small trees has to be cleared away on the south side of the park so the public will have a clear connection to the next section of parkland where the Columbus monument is located. The town will try to preserve any full-growth trees that may be part of the mix he said. Another extra according to Santos will be the installation of protective fencing along the park s riverbank. It has taken about 11 years for the town to get to this point in seeing the park actually take shape Santos said.

But Belluscio said he couldn t come up with any examples of a municipality and school district sharing legal services. During the past three years DiPisa said legal fees incurred by the district have declined from 183 000 for the 2010-11 school year to 127 000 for the 2012-13 school year and the BOE welcomes a further reduction for the upcoming year based on the Benecke proposal it has accepted. DiLascio is no stranger to local school matters. He served as a member of the BOE from 1982 to 1988 and as general counsel to the BOE from 1995 to 2005. He also endorsed a public referendum to spend nearly 30 million on a new middle school and other improvements but voters rejected it. DiLascio who stepped down as mayor but continued as a 5 200-a-year Township Commissioner with a year to go in his term to make way for fellow Commissioner Robert Giangeruso opted not to seek re-election to the Township Commission when his term ran out in May. Now as the Township of Lyndhurst Lyndhurst BOE shared services chief lawyer DiLascio will be pocketing a salary of up to 100 000 a year for performing at least 32.5 hours per week to attend commission meetings prepare meeting agenda documents and meet with commissioners on agenda items under a professional services contract approved by the Township Commission on May 21. The contract is for one year but may be renewed or extended at any time. DiLascio will be compensated at the rate of 125 an hour for all litigation troubleshooting specialized legal research and [certain] labor personnel matters. As special matters attorney Cucchiara will earn no more than 17 500 a year handling litigation and tax appeals for the township. Lyndhurst Superintendent of Schools Tracey Marinelli called the shared service arrangement a fantastic idea. Lyndhurst has always paved the way to show districts how to foster a positive relationship between two governing bodies.

Perhaps he has finally finagled asylum somewhere and perhaps he is fool enough to accept it. However this column is really not about Snowden other than (moral issues aside) the pity I have for anyone trapped that long in any airport. Everytime the Snowden Moscow Airport story airs I get the shivers. And I shall tell you why. I am a child of the Cold War. I grew up expecting to be obliterated at any given moment by H-bombs dropped from Soviet planes. I know all about Duck and Cover and what the symbol indicating an air raid shelter looks like and I have vivid memories of huddling under my desk at school during air raid drills and wondering why the teachers thought this would offer any protection at all. We kids knew better. We knew we d be toast. When the Iron Curtain was lifted and I had a chance to visit Moscow I jumped at it. How better to finally overcome my childhood terrors than to confront them in their homeland It turned out to be a terrorfree trip but tinged always with a sense of unreality. When I was in the city I was with a gaggle of other journalists from around the world. But I had to travel to and from Moscow by myself. Travel arrangements had been made for me but I was otherwise on my own. I also had the luck to be booked on a Aeroflot flight that the Russians referred to the state airline as Aeroflop. Still it could have been worse. I had been given a first-class ticket though I was warned that on the return flight I d be in coach. I could not imagine what coach was like since (way back then I am certain Aeroflot has improved vastly) first class was awful. No movies no headphones no lights for most of the night so you couldn t even read. Did we get vodka I can t recall. Maybe we got too much. I also cannot recall what they fed us though I had suspicions that somewhere back in coach they were grilling goats. In any case I made it to Moscow safely had a great time and the day before I was due to leave was told wonder of wonders that my return ticket had been upgraded and I would again be spared sitting in steerage. In the pre-dawn dark next morning once again all on my own I got a taxi to the Moscow Airport. The driver was most friendly and I tipped him well and he actually came into the airport with me to make sure I got to the right check-in counter. (Did I mention my Russian was limited to Nyet and No problemo and Zhivago ) When it was my turn I said to the counter clerk First class. And she said Nyet We repeated this exchange several times each of us getting more and more annoyed until I finally gave up and entered the waiting area convinced that d I d be soon grilling goats. NOTHING in the airport was open. There were gates and bars on everything. You couldn t even get a cup of coffee. So I just sat on a bench and studied the ticket that had betrayed me. But lo On the flight over I had managed to decipher a cyrillic phrase that obviously indicated First Class. And there it was again The counter clerk had lied. She probably had expected a bribe someone suggested later. I lept to my feet and ran over to the steel fencing that separated the benches from an open area patrolled by soldiers or policemen (I couldn t tell which they all dressed alike and they all carried automatic rifles over their shoulders). One was walking by a few yards away and I called out in an angry voice EXCUUUSE me Do you speak English He stopped and said quietly and in perfect English Do you speak Russian He had gently put me in my place and I couldn t help but laugh which broke the ice I had created. He came over I explained my predicament and showed him my ticket and he told me to follow him. We walked he on one side of the fence me on the other until we reached a gate. He let me out of my pen and guided me through a door. I found myself in what apparently was the airport police station. My gallant rescuer began explaining things to the desk sergeant in Russian of course so I really had no idea what was being said. And then he told me I would be allowed back into the check-in area but I first had to hand over my passport and visa. Which I did. I was then shown to another door walked through it alone and it locked behind me. It was then I felt the jolt. One of my childhood nightmares had come true. I was in Russia with no papers. No proof of American citizenship. No ID at all. Visions of the gulag danced in my head. Luckily the witchy clerk must have been spoken to because as soon as she saw me she scurried over spouting what sounded like apologies took my ticket circled that cyrillic phrase and stamped it. I was vindicated but I didn t breathe again until I knocked on that locked door was allowed entry and finally was given my documents. My rescuer had gone back on his beat so I could not thank him. But I shall never forget his kindness. Or that momentary terror. God bless the U.S.A. Karen Zautyk CORRECTION East Newark Elks published July 3 contained two misstatements.

Last Thursday July 11 at 3 p.m. a concerned citizen notified Kearny police headquarters that she had observed an individual engaged in huffing on Davis Ave. -- an individual who then got into a car and drove away police reported. Det. Bryant Obie and Officers Chris Medina and Sean Kelly responded to the area located the car and stopped it on Davis. According to police the driver identified as Carlos Crincev 33 of Kearny as visibly drowsy and appeared confused and disoriented. Kelly inquired as to where he was coming from and Crincev replied that he was coming from Brazil Police Chief John Dowie noted. When Crincev exited the car Kelly reportedly observed several aerosol cans with straws attached inside the vehicle. Huffing refers to the practice of inhaling the contents of a certain type of aerosol to get high we were told. Field sobriety tests were conducted and Crincev was criminally charged with use of a toxic chemical for intoxication. He was also issued summonses for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence and while in a school zone. At HQ Crincev was also given literature by Kelly regarding narcotics counselling Dowie noted. The following day at about 10 35 a.m. yet another concerned citizen notified the cops that a motorist travelling south on Kearny Ave. near New Lawn Ave. had struck a pedestrian stantion in the middle of the street and then veered wildly into the northbound lane police reported. He stopped his vehicle in the area and appeared to have passed out according to the caller Dowie reported. The motorist police said was Crincev. Officers Joe Vulcano and Ben Wuelfing responded observed that Crincev appeared to be under the influence and located five cans of aerosol spray in plain view within his vehicle Dowie said. They conducted field sobriety tests and then arrested him for allegedly operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. At headquarters he was processed given further testing and charged with DWI possession of and use of toxic chemicals for purposes of intoxication. On Saturday at 9 20 a.m. Officer Jay Ward responded to a motor vehicle accident on the 100 block of Dukes St. and arrived to find that a parked 2012 Honda had been struck by another vehicle that had fled the scene. A witness gave Ward a description of the fleeing vehicle which the officer broadcast to other patrol units. Shortly thereafter police said Officer Vulcano came upon the car unoccupied in a nearby parking lot and recognized it as the same vehicle that had been involved in the Kearny New Lawn incident the day before. The search for the driver continued and he was found by Lt. Tim Wagner on Hoyt St. It was Crincev who police said was observed huffing from a 10 oz. spray can. So for the third time in as many days Crincev was arrested. This time for DWI and DWI in a school zone possession of and the use of toxic chemicals for intoxication as well as reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. In this instance Dowie said Judge Kenneth Lindenfelser was contacted and apprised of see KPD page 10 MOVED We are now located at has 39 Seeley Ave. Kearny NJ THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 17 2013 09 MCDONALD from 01 as president saying that she was being obstructionist and combative by constant challenging of Schools Superintendent Frank Ferraro. Since the board majority King John Plaugic John Leadbeater Dan Esteves and O Malley is standing firm on its ouster of McDonald as board president D Elia said My client has authorized me to immediately file an order to show cause with the Commissioner of Education and or the Superior Court of New Jersey to obtain an order compelling the Board to [reinstate McDonald] .... Board Counsel Ken Lindenfelser declined to comment on D Elia s assertions. During the public portion of the meeting Stephen McDonald Bernadett s spouse addressed those board members who voted for his wife s ouster by name asking them to justify their actions which none did. He called their decision vile immoral wrong. The board s devisiveness was evident again on two other issues brought to its attention by Ferraro. One was his recommendation to hire Debra Sheard as assistant superintendent at 150 000 a year effective July 15 and running through June 30 2014 with her salary prorated for the 2013-2014 school year. McDonald wondered why Sheard currently an administrator at a Hunterdon County school district has never achieved tenure in any of her previous jobs and why the positions she s served in have since been downsized. ... That s a little telling to me. Did any board member check her references Ferraro said that he d checked the candidate s references that her selection was a unanimous recommendation by the search committee whose members which included two teachers three principals and two administrators used a maxtrix based on New Jersey school leadership criteria and that the candidate had a big tech background a strong point in her favor since our school system needs to be prepared for computer-based testing so we had the best interests of our children in mind by picking Sheard. When board member Sebas- Photo by Ron Leir Bernadette McDonald (in foreground) awaits outcome of vote on presidency. To her right are Trustees Dan Esteves James Doran Jr. and Cecilia Lindenfelser and Counsel Ken Lindenfelser. tian Viscuso asked why Ferraro initially recommended a different individual someone from inside the Kearny district then when a new search was conducted (after the teachers union president complained the search committee had no faculty representation) recommended someone else Ferraro said It s my prerogative to change. Ferraro added we had a transparent process this time. The board then approved Sheard s hiring by a 5-4 vote. Viscuso McDonald James Doran Jr. and Cecilia Lindenfelser dissented. Next Ferraro asked the board to authorize the hiring of D Archangelo & Co. CPAs & Financial Advisors of Poughkeepsie N.Y. to perform a Kearny High School construction risk assessment for up to 75 000. I have to be able to tell our taxpayers if we have money to finish the job Ferraro said. [Later Ferraro said that 18% of the project has been completed and that the board has spent an estimated 7 million.] We ve fired one architect we ve had all kinds of problems with change orders so I want to know that the procedures we ve followed are adequate and if the change orders we ve approved are proper Ferraro continued. We re talking about a 44 million project [including the windows and brick fa ade] we ve had 1 800 students displaced [in outdoor classroom trailers]. Ferraro added that This isn t a financial audit. We re looking for an audit of the process used and to determine if the payments we ve made were done so appropriately. Maybe he himself could have done that analysis Ferraro said but I don t have two months to spend on this. I have a budget to prepare for the coming year. And he added the board s current auditor doesn t have the necessary experience to conduct such a review. Ferraro said he had an obligation to provide taxpayers and staff that what s been done [on the high school construction job] is proper. Ferraro said he met with a representative of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey which is co-financing the project with the Federal Aviation Administration and state Department of Education toured the construction site with him and stressed the need for a financial review and [that individual] concurred. When he solicited proposals for the risk assessment D Archangelo s was the only one received Ferraro said. However Lindenfelser griped that the D Archangelo proposal should have come through the [board s] finance committee before bringing it to the full board for a vote. I just got this [proposal] 30 minutes ago. It s unfair to the board to get this now. I haven t read it. I don t know who these people are. I m not prepared to vote on it. And it s for 75 000. We still have to cut 800 000 from the school budget. Ferraro said the information was mentioned at the April 11 board meeting in a detailed memo. Asked if there was money allocated in the board s budget to pay for the risk assessment DaVita replied It s not in the budget. Asked what the district would do if D Archangelo found procedures weren t properly followed and money improperly paid Ferraro said We d correct the process and if any illegalities were found there would have to be legal steps taken to determine how to recover funds and to make sure we re on solid financial ground. Ultimately the board voted to table action on the proposal to the July 22 meeting pending further discussion. When a member of the public asked when work would resume on the high school project Ferraro said that architectural plans are being reviewed and upgraded to include code changes and we re putting together [bid] specifications for phases 4 and 5. Once work on those phases are done our students and staff can move out of the trailers. But Ferraro didn t say when construction bids for the remainder of the project would be awarded nor would he predict how long it would take to complete the project. Asked about the status of plans for conversion of the former tire factory building at 174 Midland Ave. that the board bought for more than 900 000 several years ago as the future home for board offices and two basement classrooms Ferraro said The site has been cleared environmentally and building permits have been issued. I am doing a financial assessment of the project. We plan to have the property re-assessed. When it was suggested that the board could look to sell it and apply the profits elsewhere Ferraro had no response. I VE NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY MY HUMAN WON T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT HER LEASH. I THINK SHE S AFRAlD OF GETTING LOST. BUT IT S OK I KIND OF LIKE SHOWING HER AROUND. -- HARPER adopted 08-18-09 10 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 17 2013 KPD from 08 the three arrests and bail for Crincev was set at 25 000.

Arrested later at his Kearny home was the alleged seller Philip Dabrowski 19 charged with possession and distribution of marijuana possession of paraphernalia and distribution of a CDS in a public place. July 9 Officer Vanessa Sevillano and Sgt. Paul Bershefski responded at 6 45 a.m. to a report of an auto accident at Garfield and Schuyler Aves. and arrived to find that a Honda had apparently struck a parked pick-up truck. According to police the Honda s driver Thomas Montanez 43 of Jersey City appeared unsteady on his feet and had constricted pupils. Police said Sevillano observed a pill vial on the car s center console and a clear plastic bag containing several pills on the driver s side floor and the motorist reportedly admitted ingesting Oxycontin and Xanax.

Montanez was charged on the warrant and with DWI careless driving possession of a CDS in a motor vehicle unlawful possession of a prescription drug and possession of paraphernalia.

We are currently in what has been referred to as an active hurricane season We still have crane platforms under the Rt. 3 bridge which based on the consensus of opinions is another engineered nightmare. I strongly suggest anyone attempting to enter Rt. 3 West not bring suit against the driver that hits you but to seek remedy from the company that engineered that nightmare maybe if they are held responsible for their lack of foresight they would be more concerned with the safety of those that will be using their handiwork. I wonder how many studies were done at taxpayers expense for that engineering feat. Exiting on the east side has its own challenges. Sen. Paul Sarlo indicated in May that he was going to get those crane platforms out of there. We are still waiting. A meeting with the public is scheduled for Aug. 15 at the Lyndhurst Senior Building to discuss the river. We cordially invite the Governor Sen. Robert Menendez Congressman Bill Pascrell Assemblyman Gary Schaer Assemblywoman Marlene Caride and last but not least State Sen. Sarlo. An Internet search shows that State Sen. Paul A. Sarlo (D-Bergen) was listed as the chief operating officer for Joseph M. Sanzari according to the NJ Legislature website. On his own website Sarlo lists that he is a licensed professional engineer licensed professional 06 planner and a certified municipal engineer and that he holds both a Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Science degree in civil engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He is also listed as the borough engineer for Carlstadt and is currently the chief engineer of Bishop-Sanzari Heavy Construction. But has stated to me personally that he had nothing to do with the Rt. 3 engineering feat of the company of which he is the COO. I truly believe a great deal of latitude was given to that project. We are witness to extreme weather conditions and it borders on criminal if something is not done very very soon to dredge the mud flats eliminate the creation of a flood plain and to remove any and all obstructions in the river that hinders its flow. A meeting is being planned to be held in Lyndhurst on August 15 at senior center to discuss the river. I believe it would be advantageous for representatives from our neighboring communities such as Rutherford North Arlington and Kearny to attend in an effort to force a remedy as soon as possible without the need for the boiler plate response of a study needs to be done. Those of us who live in these bedroom communities have studied the issue up close and personal. Our findings are the riverbed is too high due to years of neglect creating a floodplain flotsam not removed be it a 30 foot boat or crane platforms and the river is contaminated. These are the results of our studies through four major storms that have hit this area in recent years. My uneducated opinion (you see I am not an engineer or environmentalist) is get the obstructions out of the river and lower the riverbed. Then you can deal with the contamination because that is not going anywhere for a very long time. Common sense dictates that you fix what is fixable which is the height of the riverbed and study the other issue of contamination which has been studied for years already you see that contamination was caused by the very significant reply of there is latitude given that is why the river is contaminated because of that kind of latitude. Ladies and gentlemen our tax dollars pay these people that have allowed these problems to continue. If each of us were paid 5 cents on every dollar that has been spent on studies I believe it would amount to a significant amount of money.

But Jonathan Jaffe a spokesman for the Lower Passaic Cooprative Partner Group representing some 70 corporations which have accepted responsibility for removing dioxin and other pollutants at the 5.5-acre Lyndhurst site at river milepost 10.9 said that won t be an issue because the contractor in charge of work site will simply delay moving the barges until after the games have ended and fans have dispersed. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which is overseeing the work the Lyndhurst dredging project will involve the removal of 20 000 cubic yards of tainted soil. Once that process which figures to take about a month is done the contractor will place a two-foot cap over the dredged mudflats. By year s end EPA is due to announce a proposed remediation plan for the 17-mile stretch of the Lower Passaic which will then be open for public comment before final adoption of the plan officials said.

I was able to find time to do it Walsh said. It turned out to be exciting and great. Walsh was the manager of the Nutley East 9-and-10-year-old All-Stars that competed in the District 8 tournament a tourney that Nutley East captured a year ago. I was a little surprised that I was selected to coach Walsh said. Incredibly I was almost thinking of not doing it but it turned out to be a lot of fun. It was very enjoyable. Coaching became even more of a joy after Walsh s team recently captured the District 8 9-and-10-year-old AllStar championship last week. Nutley East defeated Bloomfield National 9-2 to win the district crown for a second straight season although this year s team had a totally new roster from a year ago. This was a totally new experience for these kids Walsh said. None of them had this kind of experience. I even had three 9-yearolds on the roster. They handled the pressure very well. Walsh knew that he had a chance with this team despite the thoroughly new roster. I thought we had a decent team Walsh said. I knew the kids were hard workers. I just didn t know how they would match up with the other teams. You never know what can happen. The Nutley East All-Stars steamrolled through the District 8 tourney winning all four contests. Walsh got his first sign that his team was competitive in the very first game against Livingston. We were down 5-0 in the early going yet we came back to win 12-10 Walsh said. It showed that this team had a lot ot of character. When Nutley East defeated Bloomfield National to secure the district championship Walsh became very emotional. It really brought tears to my eyes Walsh said. I ve never felt that way about a team before.

Of course Maria Kelly was naturally concerned. I wasn t worried about his mental capabilities because he was always super smart Maria Kelly said. I worried about him socially and how other people would react to him. Nolan Kelly s strain of Tourette syndrome has caused facial head and neck tics. His vocal tic sounds like he s grunting or clearing his throat. He does not have coprolalia. Nolan never thought much about his disorder. I guess I really never paid much attention to it and it never really bothered me Nolan Kelly said. I guess it was not until sixth grade when people would look at me and ask me see nOlan next page 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 17 2013 NOLAN from 15 about it just asking if I was fine. I knew I had Tourette but I didn t research it. My mom and dad (Pete a bank executive) helped me through it. We went to a neurologist who told us more about it. Nolan has never really thought of his illness as an infliction. In school sometimes it makes it hard to focus and it takes me longer to do assignments Nolan said. But I m pretty much a normal kid. Maria Kelly wanted her eldest son to be like her other children son Evan and daughter Mackenzie. We didn t want to treat him any differently Maria Kelly said. I think we re very fortunate to have known since he was in kindergarten. Baseball has always been a major part of Nolan s life since he was a youngster.

When I m playing baseball the tics kind of go away. When Nolan reached Lyndhurst High School he expressed interest in playing baseball and pitching for the Golden Bears. My wife taught Nolan in Franklin School and she knew Nolan and Maria said Lyndhurst head baseball coach and athletic director Frank Butch Servideo. He played freshman baseball last year and our freshman coach Patrick Auteri spoke highly of Nolan. I wondered whether he could handle it. Servideo hardly ever realized that Kelly had an infliction. Sometimes you hear him clear his throat in the dugout but once he gets on the mound he stops Servideo said. He creates more focus on the mound and concentrates when the target is set. Kelly throws all three of his pitches fastball curveball and changeup for strikes. The 16-year-old Kelly has already made his mark with the Lyndhurst varsity. He could be one of our better pitchers next year said Servideo of Kelly who will be a junior. We need to get him in the weight room and get him working on weight training activity. He s a hard worker and you can see some of the qualities he has. It s tremendous. I know other students admire him for what he s been through. Nolan is a high honors student at Lyndhurst. We feel very proud of him Maria Kelly said. I think he s amazing. What he s been able to accomplish is amazing. I know it can t be easy for him. He s lucky to have friends who are supportive of him and accepting to him because I still worry about him. I have great friends Nolan Kelly said. Once I tell people about it they re all accepting of it. Maryann Mule who is a case manager for student services at Lyndhurst has been working with Kelly to help with anything he might need. She s been there for me 100% Nolan Kelly said. Servideo said that there are other members of the Lyndhurst varsity who look after Kelly. The older kids have taken Nolan under their wing Servideo said. No one can say anything bad about him because the older kids won t allow it. I never have a problem with anyone Nolan said. The other kids are really nice to me. They are accepting and good natured about it. Now Kelly feels like he s become an advocate for Tourette syndrome. I like talking to people about it educating people about Tourette s Nolan said. People can live with issues like mine and live normal lives. They can succeed. Nolan Kelly now monitors his Tourette syndrome with medication taking three pills twice a day. If I didn t take the pills the tics could get worse Nolan Kelly said. The only downside is that I sometimes get tired and feel like falling asleep. But it does cut down on my tics and the frequency of them. In the meantime Kelly hopes that he can open up some eyes about Tourette syndrome. I hope that I can open the door and inspire others who have it Kelly said. They can overcome it like I have. 201-991-1055 Cosmetic Dentist Like us on Facebook theobservernj Louis J.

Walsh said that his team s pitching was the key to the team s success. The pitching was unbelievable throughout the whole tournament Walsh said. That s great for 10-year-olds. They never fell apart. They had such good composure. When someone made a mistake the pitchers made up for it. Joe Pezzino Billy Searle and Justin Edert all of them 10-year-olds handled the pitching chores. It s huge because the kids can only throw 75 pitches Walsh said. It s a good thing we stayed in the winners bracket because we didn t need more pitchers.

Walsh also credited the coaching that the players received during the regular season. We have a lot of good coaches in the league Walsh said. The kids were well prepared for the District tournament.

While OCT is not new it has recently been combined with lasers to more precisely conduct cataract surgery. This new procedure begins with the ophthalmologist placing a special device on the eye that sends a 3-D image to a screen. This image is used to instruct a computer where to make incisions in the eye and to break up the cataract after which the fractured cataract is removed and a manmade replacement lens is set in place. While this procedure is essentially the same as current cataract surgery it is more precise in making incisions and placement of the new lens. This column on cataracts has been brought to you in the interest of better eye health. Usually cataracts cannot be viewed from 3-D IMAGING BRINGS LASERS TO CATARACTS the outside of the eye without proper instruments.

One of the ways Bifulco made the camp fun was when he introduced a slip and slide water contraption to teach the youngsters how to slide properly into a base. They need the skills to slide the right way but this way we made it fun Bifulco said. Eight-year-old Eli Jablonski who played for the Kearny 8s in the recent Lyndhurst tournament is a first baseman pitcher. He said that he learned to hustle much like his favorite players on the Boston Red Sox like David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia. I m going to use what I learned here on a daily basis Jablonski said. Travis Witt a 12-year-old Garfield School student is a shortstop and pitcher who played for the Kearny Little League 12-year-old All-Stars in the recent District 5 tournament where they went to the finals. I learned how to hustle how to field Witt said. It s definitely going to help with my batting. It encourages me to want to play more baseball. Ten-year-old Brendan Solano is a Roosevelt School student who likes the Mets and likes David Wright and Matt Harvey. A left fielder and third baseman Solano said that he learned about hitting during the camp. I learned about squaring up the right way and taking a level swing Solano said. It was really a lot of fun. Chris Serrano is a 10-yearold student of Schuyler School. I was excited to come because baseball is my favorite sport Serrano said. I m a shortstop and a pitcher so what I learned here at camp is really going to help me. And I m definitely going to hustle more. Ryan Tully a recent graduate of Lincoln School will now head to Kearny High School in the fall. It was important for Tully to make a good impression on his future coach Bifulco. Tully one of the rising stars in town worked on his pitching mechanics in the camp. I was fooling around with the grip on my two-seam fastball said Tully who received instruction from former Kearny High head coach Jim Sickinger. I throw it like my normal fastball but it moves a little bit more now. It really helped me a lot. I also worked on my off-speed stuff. I m willing to play anywhere. I just love playing. The same can be said for 13-year-old Ryan Watson who was a pitcher infielder by trade but learned new positions at the camp. I never played the outfield before so this really helped me develop some outfielder skills Watson said. This camp will go a long way in my development. It s a lot of fun and without fun baseball would be just a game. Bifulco provided each camper with an in-depth evaluation. They get to work on things on their own Bifulco said. The key is to teach the kids the right way. We had a great staff of instructors and counselors here. The kids are learning things every day. Bifulco really liked the future of the sport. The 10 11 and 12-year-olds are really impressive and they could be dangerous by the time they get to high school Bifulco said. They re all playing together in Little League and on travel teams. About 30 of the kids here are from that age group. If they stay interested in baseball and we can bring them in when they get to high school that would be incredible. Bifulco said that he enjoys working with the youngsters. I love it Bifulco said. As a coach you get to teach these kids fundamentals and there s no pressure about winning and losing. They get a lot in the week fielding pitching hitting. We could do a camp just on hitting alone. We want to create an atmosphere where the kids want to play baseball and they re passionate about it. That s the pleasure of doing this.

Icee Commissioner Rogers Warns No tolerance policy on pets left in dangerous heat Nutley Commissioner Steven Rogers announced today that he has directed the health department to issue summonses to anyone who leaves a dog or other pets in vehicles or on ropes or leashes outside on hot days without adequate water or shade. I have directed health department officials to make checks in parking lots and other areas of town to ensure that dogs and other pets are not left in vehicles. Additionally I directed them to check on dogs that are on short ropes or leases and left in the hot sun Rogers said. If we find that cruelty to animal laws are being violated the police will be notified as well as the ASPCA and the responsible party will be charged with violation of the appropriate criminal statue. There is simply no excuse for a person to leave dogs and other pets (and may I add children) in a life threatening situation. Anyone who commits such and act is breaking the law and they will be prosecuted the commissioner said. Rogers said that it takes minutes for a pet left in a vehicle on a warm day to succumb to heatstroke and hot metal can burn a dog s paws the sun and flying debris can hurt the dog the dog can accidentally be thrown out of the truck if the brakes are suddenly applied and the dog can jump out if scared or upon seeing something interesting to chase. Instead use a crate to create a safer space for the dog if you can t fit the dog inside the truck cab. Take the dog into the shade an air conditioned area or to the vet if you see signs of heat exhaustion which include restlessness excessive thirst heavy panting lethargy dark tongue rapid pulse fever vomiting glazed eyes dizziness or lack of coordination. To lower body temperature gradually give the animal water to drink place a cold towel or ice pack on the head neck and chest and or immerse damage the nervous and cardiovascular systems often the dog in cool (not cold) leaving the animal comatose water.

According to the ASPCA a temperature of 75 degrees outside is 118 degrees inside a vehicle and 94 degrees outside is 145 degrees inside a vehicle. Elaborating Rogers said that many people ask if it is okay to leave a dog in a car with the air-conditioning running The answer is no. The air-conditioning compressor will kick-off if the engine gets too hot and instead of cold air flowing from the vents hot air will flow. Within minutes the dog will die. Animals are not able to sweat like humans do. Dogs cool themselves by panting and by sweating through their paws. If they have only overheated air to breathe animals can collapse suffer brain damage and possibly die of heatstroke. It can take just 15 minutes for an animal s body temperature to climb from a normal 102.5 to deadly levels that will 22 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 17 2013 Real Estate THINK YOU CAN T REFINANCE BECAUSE VALUES ARE DOWN THINK AGAIN STARTING MARCH 2012 HARP 2.0 a new program presented by the Federal Government allows homeowners to refinance regardless of the equity they currently have in their house (even if you are upside down ) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have adopted changes to Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and you may be eligible to take advantage of these changes.

FEMA inspectors continue to help recovery in New Jersey TRENTON -- As New Jersey continues recovery from Sandy inspectors from many different program areas of the Federal Emergency Management Agency are working in the Garden State. FEMA inspectors may be verifying damage to homes working with the National Flood Insurance Program to estimate substantially damaged structures in hard-hit areas. Many but not all FEMA inspectors will be wearing FEMA clothing however all FEMA inspectors will carry official FEMA identification. The arrival of an inspector from FEMA means the damage to a home will be identified and recorded. Identifying damage is an important step in determining both the amount and the types of assistance FEMA may provide. In addition to FEMA inspectors other government agencies such as Housing and Urban Development or the SBA may also have inspectors working in communities across the state. FEMA inspectors never charge a fee to inspect damage. Don t Let Mortgage Problems Petrify You. When you struggle with your mortgage payments you become frozen. Petrified.

The victim told officers he was walking with a friend when they were approached by two males one of whom said What s up Then the victim said he was put in a headlock and one of the men put a knife to his throat while going through his pockets. His assailant removed 12 and a pack of cigarettes and the pair then fled in a red vehicle the victim told police. Police said an investigation resulted in the subsequent arrest about an hour after the incident of Darren Campos 18 of Nutley and a 17-yearold Nutley juvenile on Passaic Ave. based on the victim s description of his attackers. Police said the victim positively identified both suspects as the individuals who had accosted him earlier. Police said no weapon was found on either of the suspects. Campos was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and the juvenile was charged with robbery possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose. Bail for Campos was set at 100 000 with no 10% cash option and he was transported to the Essex County Jail. The juvenile was taken to the Essex County Juvenile Detention Center pending a juvenile hearing. Eight days prior to the robbery incident police said they responded to a report of a burglary in progress at a Harrison St. residence. The Saturday July 6 incident was logged at 9 49 a.m. Upon arrival police said that it appeared that the front door had been kicked open. The occupant told police that they were asleep in their second-floor bedroom when the bedroom door was pushed open. Looking up they spotted a man standing in front of their dresser with his back toward them. When the occupant asked the man what he was doing the intruder turned around and said he was in the wrong house and ran out police said. Police searched the area without success. Police said the occupant described the intruder as white bald in his 20s or 30s about 5-feet-nine thin with no shirt wearing tan khaki cargo shorts and possibly having tatoos. Within 48 hours following an investigation by detectives police said they had identified a suspect whom they apprehended early Tuesday July 9. He was identified as Brian Blozen 38 of Bloomfield and was charged with burglary and criminal mischief. Bail was set at 50 000 with a 10% cash option. During the morning hours on July 8 police received three reports of criminal mischief two involving homes and one a motor vehicle. A Raymond Ave. homeowner called police at 1 20 a.m. to report that someone threw a rock through a side window. At 10 24 a.m. police were called to a Carlton Terrace house where they found one window broken and the outer screen with a hole in it. The owner told police the incident may have happened during the early morning. And at 9 42 a.m. police were called to a Highland Ave. location where the owner of a vehicle parked on the block told them someone smashed the rear passenger side window and officers found a hammer under the rear of the vehicle.
